U.S. eases import ban in Burma

Good news: The U.S. said it would begin to ease a long-standing import ban on Myanmar, providing a boost to President Thein Sein as he carries out political and economic overhauls that have transformed the former military state into a hot Asian frontier market, reports Wall Street Journal. This will encourage even more tourism to this land of the pagodas which includes a small Jewish community.
